aged 68 years.

Key Hill Cemetery is located near the Jewellery Quarter, in the south of the Hockley area of Birmingham. It is – together with the nearby Warstone Lane Cemetery – the oldest ‘independent’ cemetery in the city (earlier, there were only churchyards there). Key Hill opened in 1936. It was a so-called Nonconformist cemetery: only non-Anglicans were buried there (members of the Church of England found their resting place in Warstone Lane). The tombstone of J.B. Tolkien’s family is situated near the main entrance on Icknield Street, just before the second intersection and the corner with the catacombs.
